Built in 1978 by Cochrane Shipbuilders for United Towing of Hull, Yorkshireman and her sister ship Irishman were two of the UK's largest and most powerful tugs.
Both were involved in all types of towing work in the North Sea and around the world. Their most famous days were without a doubt during the Falklands War when the Royal Navy took them into service with Salvageman. The trio formed the largest group of purpose-built tugs during the war.
Their best known exploit was in the attempt to save the container ship Atlantic Conveyor after she had been hit by missiles from the Argentinean Air Force; unfortunately this rescue attempt was not successful.The kit includes approximately 1200 parts and is recommended for the more experienced model maker.
